New issue

Securities that are publicly offered for the first time, whether in an IPO or as an additional issue of stocks or bonds by a company that is already public.

New Issue

Any offering of stock by a publicly-traded company. If it is the first such offering, it is called an initial public offering (IPO); otherwise, it is called a follow-on offering. A company makes a new issue through underwriters, who have the responsibility to place the offering with individual and institutional investors. Companies make new issues in order to raise financing for expanded operations, or because they have become cash poor and need to finance their current operations. The offerings themselves give investors a portion of ownership in the company issuing them.

new issue

A security that is being initially offered to the public. New stock issues are often quite risky; the securities may change significantly in price shortly after the initial sale has been completed. The greatest number of new issues generally appear near the end of an extended bull market. See also offering price.

New issue.

When a stock or bond is offered for sale for the first time, it's considered a new issue.

New issues can be the result of an initial public offering (IPO), when a private company goes public, or they can be additional, or secondary, offerings from a company that's already public.

For example, a public company may sell bonds from time to time to raise capital. Each time a new bond is offered, it's considered a new issue.
